ever since installing the Sony DW-U18A DVD/CD-RW, windows xp pops up a 'new hardware found' wizard whenever i boot up. it asks for the Sony hardware disc which i do not possess (or need?) because i am using the DVD/CD-RW with Nero 6. so i cancel the wizard and carry on.
trouble is, when i do want to install a new piece of hardware, my pc appears to get totally confused by my cancelling the xp wizard which is trying to install the Sony - then using the same mechanism to install something else (new driver for something totally unrelated to the Sony) - which it then refuses to do.
is it not possible to let windows xp install 'something' for the Sony - to stop it popping up every time i start-up; or to cancel the wizard specifically for the Sony hardware, so that the wizard does not conflict with subsequent devices, which need it to install drivers?
the Sony did not arrive with software, which hasn't stopped me using it - but now i have an eternal wizard pop-up which i cannot resolve, it seems!
help vastly appreciated, please -
